Hi Friend!


Today, I felt compelled to share some thoughts with you about self-love and taking care of our mental health.


In the midst of our busy lives, it’s easy to forget the importance of nurturing our own well-being.


Part of loving ourselves more, means recognizing what in our lives fills us with energy and what depletes it.


It’s about understanding that it’s okay, necessary even, to let go of things that consistently harm our mental peace. This could be anything – a job that doesn’t bring satisfaction, a relationship that’s more draining than fulfilling, or even daily habits like watching the news that can leave us feeling fearful and anxious.


I’ve come to learn that of the most precious aspects of life, my friend, is that we have the power to choose.


We get to make choices for our lives every day, all day long, including where our attention and energy go.


It’s not about being harsh to others, but about being gentle and kind to ourselves. Why should we invest our precious time and energy in situations that drain us, when we could use that same energy to enrich and fulfill our lives?


I encourage you to take a moment and ask yourself: Are the choices I’m making a reflection of love…not just love for others, but love for myself? Am I placing a high enough value on my time and attention Am I nurturing my well-being and prioritizing my needs and my happiness?


It’s essential to become conscious of whether we’re making decisions based on a desire to please others or meet external expectations, rather than focusing on what truly makes us happy.


Speaking of which, let’s not forget about the things that bring us joy and charge our power containers with energy!


Perhaps you get energized by listening to music, going for a walk or a hike, painting, reading, connecting with friends, baking, volunteering, journaling, having fresh flowers at home, (____ fill in the blank).


And what if we made these not just occasional treats, but regular parts of our daily lives?


Imagine the difference it would make if we prioritized activities that light us up and energize us as much as we prioritize our daily responsibilities.


So, to wrap this thought up with a bow, I ask you to reflect on two things:


– What in your life is currently draining your energy?
– Conversely, where can you invest in activities that nourish and rejuvenate you?


Remember, self-love isn’t selfish; it’s essential. And in taking care of ourselves, we are better equipped to bring our best selves to the world and to those we love.


With lots of love,
